    Using an installed MS font

    I wish to use a font that has been pre-installed in the fonts folder in Windows 10 Pro but I do not know how to get it to display in a browser, Wordpad, Notepad, or anywhere else I type.

    The font, Bahnschrift (and variations) were pre-loaded, but I can't figure out how to get them to display when I type.

    There is no menu selection or anywhere to tell Windows I want to use this font.

    The only information I can find about fonts is how to install them, and in this case the font is already there, I just can't use it.

    Hello Kirsty,
